Great place to pray and be at peace with all God has blessed you with. Also, a great place to stop and rest at the end of the Arabia Mt/Yellow River bike trail.

This is the second visit to the monastery and we were not disappointed. From the beautiful grounds and buildings to the cafe and gift shop. This is a wonderful day for one or for the family. Parking is good and convenient. Great hidden gem.
